To kill some time we popped into Outdoor Megastore and I have fallen in love with an Outwell airbeam tent. It is an ideal size, a lovely polycotton - only problem is that is it close on 1,200 - so all I need now is to win the lotter y and I will be happy.

I'm so tempted, so so tempted. Without the awning it doesn't have the space we prompted for in the Yellowstone,but it suits my wandering not staying in one place too long nature.

I've promised I'll at least wait and see how people cope with them in windy conditions this year.

If you get all the optional extras, your looking at over 2,000. I wonder how much it costs Outwell to make these, as when you think about it they are still mass produced not built to order.
